Turns out the chickens are the real losers at the Super Bowl! From the ASPCA:

More than 1 billion chicken wings will be eaten on Super Bowl Sunday—that many wings could form a line from CenturyLink Field, the Seattle Seahawks’ home stadium, all the way to MetLife Stadium…30 times over! Nearly all of these wings came from chickens raised in dirty, cramped quarters who were bred to grow so big, so fast they can hardly walk. But it doesn’t have to be that way: Chickens deserve better, and so do we. Check out the ad [above], then share it on Facebook and Twitter. And if you haven’t already, make sure you stand up for healthier, more humanely raised chickens by signing our petition at TruthAboutChicken.org.

They have a giant screen set up outside MetLife stadium playing this chicken spot and this short spot about puppy mills

As I’ve said in the past, the ultimate goal is to have all chickens totally free, chilling on the range or wherever, safe from ever being eaten. BUT until that happens, I would love to see an improvement in the way chickens are treated currently. And this is such great exposure! I hear this Super Bowl is quite popular.

Adorable Girl and Puppy Say ‘No’ to Puppy Mills

What happens when you combine the cutest little girl and the cutest dog in one video? You can watch it above.

The ASPCA launched a new campaign at NoPetStorePuppies.com, where they encourage visitors not to purchase products or animals from pet stores, many of which breed through puppy mills.

Instead, contact your local shelter. You might just rescue the newest member of your family!

Sorry, I can’t boycott pet stores that sell animals (anymore); I’ve died of cute overload.

Can you get enough Cheesecake? Neither can we! Cheesecake and her passel of scrappy dachshund pups live at Rocky Ridge Refuge in Arkansas, where they take donations in case you want to show your love for this stoic capybara with money. Cheesecake for mother of the year!

Laura brings the most pertinent cuteness to Jezebel, and then we bring it to you, because that is the circle of blog life. The point is, itty bitty Bandit at Peace, Love, and Pit Bulls wants to go on the treadmill SO BAD! Look at him try!

For further puppy antics, give yourself the gift of the Puppy Bowl locker room live cam. Once last week I saw four little puppies all tugging on the same green stuffed toy. It was magical and soul-renewing. My whole internet life right now is puppies; what better way to start 2013!

Welcome the starting lineup for Puppy Bowl IX!  »

Puppy Bowl is back! We love Puppy Bowl, because puppies + adoption = television GOLD, and we are super-happy to alert you to this year’s starting lineup. The Puppy Bowl IX players are here! Let’s size them up!

My favorites this year are Daffodil, of Harley’s Haven Rescue in Souderton, Pa., because look at THAT FACE. She is like the platonic ideal of That Puppy in the Window and I just want to make her happy.

I am also pretty enamored of Sally, from North Smithfield, R.I.’s Furever Dachshund Rescue. She is long of ear and body, and short of leg, which are qualities I appreciate in a dog.

Finally, ol’ Lenny here, from Gimme Shelter in Sagaponack, N.Y., because he looks tough. It’s hard to look tough when you’re an itty-bitty puppy with tiny milk teeth and awkwardly oversized paws.

Who are your favorites? I’ve never picked an MVP, but that doesn’t matter when you’ve got a football field full of puppies. Puppy Bowl IX airs at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3, on Animal Planet.

Update: Blitz is totally going to kick A because her name is Blitz and she’s wild-eyed! -Megan

Meet Beyonce, the mini puppy!  »

SO cute! Look at her, her head is smaller than the cookie!

Sorry, there’s a super annoying commercial in the beginning of this video. But it’s worth it to see that little pup!:

[Can’t see the video? Watch it on Vegansaurus.com!]

OMG, right? Ridic. Goddang baby animals, you guys just get me.

Photo Gallery: Cute-ass pit bull puppies!  »

Laura really wanted me to make a pit bull puppy photo gallery and I only want to make Laura happy! Plus, I have a new theory that looking at cute baby animal pictures raises your oxytocin levels and that that will boost your mood. I call it “Squee Therapy.” So, here’s the babies!:

1. Chuckles

2. “but…but… I didn’t mean to”

From Thedognapper.com

3. “Look, mom! I’m swimmin’ by myself!”

From Mediabistro.com

4. Sweepy

From Thecuteproject.com

5. “but whyyyy?”

From Brandonbond.com

6. Glamour shot

7. “what am I forgetting?”

From Cutepuppies.net

8. I don’t know what to write for this one—ideas? Hipstamatic pup?

From Redditmeme.com

9. Pocket pup!

From Rswatski

10. I call this, “cutest shit ever.”

From Themacinator

Yay pit bull puppies! If you want to adopt a pit bull, basically go to any shelter in the United States. And of course Petfinder works too! 

For more cute adoptable pups and a lot of info on the many wonders of the pit bull, go to Badrap.com. Check out their How to Help page for things you can do for this put-upon breed.

PS: I’m reminded by a reader to add that while puppies are the cutest greatest, they are a hassle! JK, that’s not what she said (but it’s true); but seriously, folks, puppies are great but there are plenty of pit bull pups in shelters already so please spay and neuter your dogs! No more homeless pups!

Cute puppy gets rescued from a drain pipe! Why are puppies always getting stuck in drain pipes?! I saw this video on Jezebel and they have pretty much the greatest little description ever, including this gem: “There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it is the tiniest puppy.” Amen.

Cats watching the Puppy Bowl from Buzzfeed! Oh Buzzfeed, you know me so well. 
Did you guys watch it? I didn’t see the whole thing but I watched it for a while. It was kind of rough and tumble! I worry for the puppies. If you missed it, you can see clips on Animal Planet’s site. Apparently Fumble was the MVP. Congrats, champ!
